Old Style Pub Keeps Character with Cascade

The Oast House

An old style pub at Crown Square in the heart of Manchester city centre prides itself in heritage character even though it is hidden among some of Manchester’s most contemporary sky scrapers.  

The Oast House, owned by the New World Pub Company, keeps this character through an eye for detail including specifying an appropriate rainwater system to complement the old style look.   

With the help of Brett Martin’s Cascade ‘cast iron style’ rainwater system the character of the rustic pub is maintained.  Cascade is manufactured so close in detail to real cast iron that it is hard to tell the difference even from close range. Cascade can be seen from The Oast House barbeque area where many gather during the day for a quick bite of lunch or socialise in the evenings. 

There are not just the obvious aesthetic benefits to Cascade, for the installer Cascade provides a lightweight product, quick and easy to handle and transport.  It offers huge efficiencies in product costs, installation and site costs compared to traditional materials and makes working at height easier and safer. Additional benefits include that Cascade is corrosion-free, UV stabilised and comes with a 10 year guarantee making it very low maintenance in comparison to real cast iron.

Although 112mm Half Round was ideal in this case, there are also another two styles of domestic gutter, 106mm Profiled Ogee and for larger or steeper roofs 115mm Deepstyle. All utilise either 68mm round or 65mm square downpipes. For commercial projects there is a high capacity 160mm Roundstyle gutter with 105mm round and 4”x3” rectangular downpipe choice.

With an extensive range of Accessories and Moulded Hoppers, which can carry bespoke designs, an integrated Cascade Soil System and a choice of Six Heritage Colours, Cascade is the obvious choice for customers.
